My Students

I teach in a low income, inner city school where students come from many different situations and home lives. These children rely on education as the main way out of their current home situation and violent and drug ridden communities. My school serves students who came from poverty and financially unstable classrooms, prior to the pandemic. Now students are facing more economic hardship and families do not have available funding for school supplies and class lists.

I want to ensure that my students are coming back to in-person learning without having to worry about having the proper supplies so they can focus solely on learning!

Being able to provide kleenex, pencils, hand sanitizer, headphones, pens, and other basic classroom necessities without having to ask families who are already financially struggling would be so beneficial to the students and their learning experience.

My Project

Providing supplies to students without implementing financial strain on families, allows for my students to focus solely on their education without the burden of not having the right supplies. We are a project-based school, with arts integration, as a result of the pandemic, collaboration and art has been limited due to social distancing and not having proper supplies to each individual student! These resources will give students access cleaning supplies so they can safely collaborate in the midst of the pandemic. Additionally, it will allow my students to begin to get fuel their creative minds and allow their artistic skills to flow!
